Geocache Description:

This is a 2 stage multi at Buttermilk Falls.

This cache is located at Buttermilk falls (The highest water fall in New Jersey) the water fall is about a 75 foot drop. There is a staircase like structure that you can climb up, and two small lookout decks to see the falls from. This is a very good and often overlooked area in the Delaware Water Gap Recreation Area. The falls are better visited in the spring time, in the fall it is pretty much dried up.

Parking can be found in the lot at this location N41 08.242 W074 53.341

I have been given permission from the parks service to place the cache here.

The total hike to the cache is about .1 miles each way with about 200 feet of elevation gain. The final cache container is a green ammo can. Most of the hike is on the trail, but the last hundred feet or so is a slight bush wack up some rocks.

I won't give directions to the area, but the road can be found on some maps, and it isn't a maintained road. It is about a 2 mile drive down a dirt road depending on which way you take. While your in the area I have another cache that you can do in wallpack center (Lost In Time GCQBWP).

The first stage is a micro hidden at the bridge. It contains the location of the ammo can. Please be careful to rehide it well so it will not be seen by anyone hiking by.

You might have noticed that the name mentions a cave well maybe when you get near the ammo can you will spot it. It is pretty large and maybe 20 feet deep.

Good Luck
